i have had a meeting at work today to basically say that my work is not up to scratch (I’ve known this for a while). We have now reached the end of the line and I either need to resign or will be given my notice.
in terms of universal credit, does anyone know which is the best option. Will I be able to claim either way?
I would not resign as you will definitely be sanctioned, if your employer gives you notice you could argue that you were unfairly dismissed, do not admit under any circumstances that you knew that your work wasn’t up to scratch others again you’ll be sanctioned.
Sorry to hear that. I recommend that you contact our Single Parent Helpline. They will be open today between 5 & 7 then Thursday 10 – 4 and Friday 10 – 4. They should be able to help you to explore your options. The number is 0808 802 0925.
Instead ask for written feedback and for a supportive improvement plan. Make sure you only sign if you agree. The support should be about what the employer will do to make you a success in the role as much as what you need to do!
Sadly if under two years employed and on probation it is easier for them to let you go.
Don’t resign as this impacts on your rights to benefits.
